All four of these speakers are widely renowned, and we have a great selection of their titles available to buy from our dedicated World Humanist Congress Section in the Norrington Room. Even better, after each talk, there’ll be a chance to have your books signed.

So come and join us in the Norrington Room this afternoon – it’s sure to be an amazing time! And in the meantime, check out our fab World Humanist Congress page here, where you can see books by all our Congress speakers, and other relevant titles.
